What is Basaglar KwikPen Used For? Side Effects and Dosage

What is Basaglar KwikPen?

Basaglar insulin is a medication containing a recombinant human insulin protein that works in the body as a long-acting parenteral agent to lower blood glucose levels and maintain glycemic control. Basaglar differs slightly from traditional human insulin due to three amino acid types and positions.

The Basaglar Kwikpen is a prefilled delivery device that quickly and easily administers the drug to the patient. The manufacturer is Boehringer Ingelheim.

What is it used for?

Basaglar is used to establish glycemic control in individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus. This product is suitable for use in pediatric patients (>6 years old) with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Basaglar, however, is contraindicated for patients who are hypersensitive to insulin glargine.

How to take Basaglar

Basaglar is administered as a solution for subcutaneous injection once per day. It must be taken at the same time each day. The injection sites of the abdomen, thigh, and deltoid must be rotated from one dose to the next.
